Hi there,

My name is Madelyn Holliday and I am a recent graduate of the Virginia Tech Interior Design program.  I am currently searching for employment in New York City.  Throughout the course of my design education, I have developed a passion for experiential design, whether it applies to workplace, hospitality, or residential environments.  I also find myself intrigued by human wellbeing.  As humans spend 90% of their time indoors, interior spaces should be thoughtfully designed, taking wellbeing into account in every aspect of a design. 

Although I am a recent graduate with only a couple years of experience working at design firms, I am a quick learner with an incredible amount of drive.  I believe I would be a valuable addition to your team!

ASID Student Portfolio Competition Finalist, Award

The Legacy Scholarship is open to all students in their junior or senior year of undergraduate study enrolled in at least a three-year accredited program of interior design. The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic accomplishment, creative achievement, and personal statement.

Steelcase NEXT Student Design Competition, Honorable Mention

For the 7th Annual Steelcase NEXT Student Design Competition, students will design a 10,600 sq. ft. learning space to support these changing behaviors and expectations. It’s a great opportunity to prepare students for the demands of learning space design, and it makes a valuable addition to your 2019 fall curriculum. Participants will have the chance to win a trip to Steelcase, present to professional judges, and ultimately compete for both cash and product prizes.
